>ShaT-sandarbhas by jiiva gosvaamii
>vedaanta-shyamantaka by baladeva vidyabhuuShana

by Hari das Shastri of Kaliya Dah in Brindavan and published under the name
of : Sri-gadadhara-gaurahari Press,  Brindavan, (1982 onwards in six

published in 1965 by Krishna das Baba in Govardhana (Mathura) and in

stock of Krishna das Baba's books after his death), or in second hand book
stores in Brindavan.

Sorry for the scratchy info but there are no ISBN numbers, etc. for these
types of books.

happy hunting,
